Great Firewall Issues

Anyone having issues with the firewall blocking access to the site? In particular does it interfere with the microphone?

The microphone issues don't need a firewall to manifest. It sometimes works in some browser, sometimes not. I have the Microphone turned off after the first day on Duolingo. I am happier with just repeating the sentences out loud and trying to mimic the TTS voice during the exercises.

Which firewall do you mean? Firewalls in general or the 'great' Chinese firewall?

I live in China, I meant the Chinese Firewall.
